I havent got to looking yet but these are a few I know didn't get drafted, someone please correct me if they have been signed.

Josh Buhl SS - 5-11, - 205 - Kansas State (LB)
A Possible LB Switch to S. Josh Buhl has been a player I have watched for many years, he has a good stregnth and I think he has great potential to be a S in the NFL. Size is a concern when it comes to playing the LB spot of Buhl but I think a switch to S can correct everything.

Brandon Everage - FS - 6-0, - 194 - Oklahoma (S)
I haven't looked yet but Brandon Everage has to be signed. The Kid has some Off The Field issues a reason he didnt play in some of Oklahoma's big games, but he has great upside, and I think can be an elite saftey in the NFL given time.

Andrew Shull - DE - 6-5, - 265 - Kansas State
Last but not leats, Andrew Shull is the last player the pops into my head, as Buhl Shull has get upside potential. I have also watched Shull player throughout his career I think he is someone u can take a chance on sign him to the practice sqaud and give him a shot.

Well I don't know if any of those have been signed yet but those are 3 names that standout in my mind.

Default Renteria, I like this guy

I was digging around for something on these guys and found this on D.J. Renteria. It's quite possible that many of you have already seen it but for anyone who hasn't I thought it was a good read. Not tremendously informative but I don't think you can read it and not like the guy. I hope he makes it.

To start with Martin is down there twice. He'll be a blocking TE. The DT's from BYU and New Mexico play a 3 down linemen defense so that gives them a head start. Brad Lekkerkerker is a great pick up. He's huge. About like Seth Wand. A little stiff, needs to improve his lower body strenght. Starling is super fast, but has a Randy Moss mind set. He ran an average 4.39 forty on his pro day... in football cleats and on grass. He returns also and is probably coming in for that. He didn't have a great vertical jump and he needs to get stronger. The other OT is 6'6" 300 pounds and is supposed to be really good at pass blocking.

Default Undrafted Free Agents that are still available

By looking at www.draftdaddy.com and www.nfl.com you can see which undrafted free agents are still there for the taking. I was curious which guys some of you would like to see picked up by the Texans... or perhaps you are just surprised no one has taken them.

I honestly don't see any other UDFA left. Maybe the Texans might pick up another one or two, but I doubt it.

Still haven't see anything official from the Texans, but Ourlad's has the following college FA's on the depth chart:

Brad Lekkerkerker T Cal - Davis
Chavis Smith G Tennessee
Andrew Martin C Northern Colorado
Ryan Bachman T Kearney St
Tim Gale RB Northeastern

Because I care, here's Tim Gale's bio. Dude looks like a throwback from the leather helmet days.

I believe DeMarco McNeil and Pugh both have injuries and that is the thing that kept them from being drafted. As I was writing the original string on this I had a player I was going to mention... but then I checked again and the guy was now gone.

Clarence Farmer seems like someone Houston might have brought in. He's from Houston and runs well between the tackles.

I know that wouldn't stop the Texans from drafting them.

mcneil and pugh might have injuries but looking at our DL depth i would say it's reasonable to take a chance that one of them might turn into something good for us...unless of course the injury is serious

Farmer may be too much of a headcase.

I would love to see Pugh brought to camp, though.

My outlook on the line is not as gloomy.

Robaire Smith is a young player entering his prime. There are TONS of teams playing guys Walker's and Payne's age on the D-line, and we have no more chance of injury than anyone else does at that position (**players get hurt all the time in the NFL and come back fine). Deloach has started over 30 consecutive games and he is now our primary back up. We have young developing players in Sears and Iaone. I just do not see the need to worry so much. I feel we have a nice 5-6 man rotation right now, and are just in need of one body, imo. I'd like to see us sign one Veteran after the June 1 cuts.

This will not be Walkers last year, nor will it be Payne’s. Players get hurt all the time in the NFL. It does not mean it will happen to them again...."just because". We can still draft a lineman to develop next year. Our old guys aren't that old.

I agree people say our D-Line is good But "OLD" i disagree WALKER is not that old at all, i mean he has a few years under the belt but he is still a very productive player who can make another ProBowl, Robaire is yonug and same thing for payne I think D-Line is good 4 now!

I agree, I think we fans are a little bit gun shy after our injury problems last year (not that I blame anyone for it.) I wish I had more insight into why we let Steve Martin go unsigned, when I think about the type of player I'd like to add at the June 1st cuts he's pretty much it. Thought the same thing about Ryan Young though, so I'll have to defer to CC on this one.

oh and Sears is 2 years older then payne, so he's not exactly "young and developing"

Wow, I had always assumed he was younger for some reason. Come to think of it I may not have ever even looked at his profile. Thanks

Default Pollite???

I'm trying to find out what happen to Lousaka Pollite. This guy was a monster fB at the univeristy of Pittsburgh. Everyone had him listed as the 2nd or 3rd best Fb, but hasn't picked up a team yet. Whoever gets him will be lucky. Hard worker, smart, and can play the game. I would love to see him in a Texans uni, but I just hope the guy gets a chance.
